Great Barrier Reef Snorkelling Trip: Join MV Adrenalin for this 1 Day snorkelling trip out to the Central Section of the Great Barrier Reef off Townsville Queensland. The Central Section is a little further off the coast that other locations. But because of this, you'll find some of the best snorkelling sites of the whole Great Barrier Reef there.
Great Barrier Reef Snorkelling Trip
- Snorkelling on Lodestone Reef
- Swimming with a large range of aquatic wildlife
- Professional guides
The target reef for the days snorkelling tour is Lodestone Reef. This reef is chosen for its diversity of sites, great coral cover, fish life and reasonable protection.
Some sites feature large coral bommies with white coral sand sea floors. Other sites offer large gutters running through the coral occupied by hundreds of reef fish, and colourful coral walls occupied by innumerable marine animals in crystal clear water. We choose the best sites based on the conditions of the day.
Depths at Lodestone range from 1 metre to 20 metres making it ideal for snorkelers.
